Thanksgiving

(This November we wrote down one blessing a night to try to focus on our blessings. This is our blessings mirror.)

Thanksgiving was a much quieter affair this year. After our plans to go to Wisconsin got postponed, we were, home alone.

Around noon on Thanksgiving day we realized that our neighbors weren't doing anything for Thanksgiving. Since they are Japanese, they probably don't feel like they were missing much, but at the very last minute we invited them over and it made for a really nice evening.

Black Friday I was up at an unearthly hour of 3:00 am. I wanted to do some power shopping, though there really wasn't much on the list, it's in my blood to get up and shop. (see Julie's blog on the right for proof of that!)

After being #249 in line at Belk and getting my $5 gift card, braving Wal-mart and what seemed like dozens more stores I came back home with my meager treasures.

Later that day, Jonathon asked me what I wanted to do today. I told him, "take a nap." So, that's what I did. Before he took his turn napping, Jonathon suggested we go bowling after dinner. It sounded like fun, so after Jonathon's nap, we hit the bowling alley.

Note the glasses and slightly groggy look. I took my nap with my contacts in. Translation, my eyes were not at all happy with me!

Eye candy

I have been trying to do this post for 2 weeks now. Halloween day wasn't much fun this year so I haven't really been into reliving it. Luckily we had a lot of fun BEFORE Halloween.



Olive's school Halloween party. Jonathon is always asked to bring the pumpkin bean bag toss game that he made.




We went to the city "Boo fest" on Monday with a friend.




And this is what we did all day Halloween. ER visit at 1am. I really thought this one wasn't going to keep breathing. She has since been diagnosed with asthma. I'm sorry to my sister and sister in law for giving them even more reasons to freak out over their own children. It was just my scariest Halloween, EVER.

And Aspen's birthday cake. She asked me to bake everyone a little cake and then we could each decorate them however we wanted.
